my god....GROW UP. everyone agrees Kerry won, he appeared better prepared, smarter, calmer........ so why must you do exactly what you are criticizing bush supporters of.....ignoring things.

you're whole post said nothing in regard to what he took out of his pocket.

It's implied in his satirical post that both candidates probably took out pens from their pockets. (He didn't disagree with BRussell.)

A pen is realistic.
A "cheat sheet" is both desperate and absurd.
A "fully loaded brain" goes beyond a cheat sheet.

In case it hasn't been clear, I thought I was making a very obvious show of ignoring this "issue", such as it is, because it is trivially silly. It is also hypocritical for the Bushies to try to make hay out of this, since Bush apparently pulled something out of his own pocket as well, violating the same silly rule. Further, Bush spoke out of turn a couple times, a much more "serious" violation of the rules than pulling out a pen at possibly the wrong moment. Where's the foaming at the mouth over that?

But if you want to lend credence to... um, shall we call it "Pengate"?... by treating a ludicrous act of desperation with stern seriousness, if you want to play the Republican spinmeister's game of wasting more time worrying about someone pulling out a pen than someone wasting American lives in a wrongful and incompetently executed war... be my guest.

certainly did not look like he pulled a pen from his pocket.

i also dont see bush pulling something out of his pocket. do you have video of that?

rules are rules.

im not wasting time doing anything, hell, im not a republican, you're on an internet message board.....you participate in the pinnacle of wasting your life away. if you thinking talking about a wrongful war instead of taking something out of a pocket it going to make a change in the world then you really are delusional.

I suggested that. It's harder to see because the angle is wrong, but it sure looks like, when Bush turns to face the podium - same time Kerry is putting his hand in his jacket pocket - he also reaches into his jacket and pulls out a pen and puts it in writing position. I'm not sure, he could have pulled it off the podium, but it looks like his hand is at the wrong angle to be just going on the podium.

It's pretty obvious to me that Bush pulls out a pen. You can see him click the top of it with his thumb and start writing.

Well, at least he can do that without publicly fucking it up, falling down, or choking.

Wow. Where's Dan Rather on this one? It's clearly paper, and that's a no-no.

Yeah, well I heard from the far left that Bush was wearing an earpiece. Who to believe? As far as I am concerned, individuals making either accusation are FOS partisans.

New York Post and Fox News say pen.

Shetline, you suppose they figured out how to make the Bush Mind Controller fit in a pen?

Yeah. It's clearly paper all over the place.

Bush lost the debate. The polls suggest he lost his lead, too. Get over it.

OK. Seems Fox lied again. Here's what he really pulled out.
post #177 of 183
Is this really an issue? Both were clearly seen reading and writing on C-SPAN and likely every station but FOX News (who stuck to the no 2 shots rule it seemed to me).

Big shrug.

Actually I saw it live on NBC the first time, then taped on C-Span and CNN and FOX for comparison.

C-Span is the only way to go. (Assuming one has cable).

But yeah NBC said "yeah right" to the stupid no 2-shot rule and did it entirely in 2 shots Not sure what other broadcast channels did.

I think my favourite part in the debate was when Kerry accused Bush of invading Iraq without a coalition. Then Bush responds, "What do you mean without a coalition - what does that say to Tony Blair of Britain ......... long pause .......... and Aleksander Kwasniewski of Poland?"

That was it ... he named 2 fuckin' allies! Not only was he looking like and idiot, he was talking like one as well - that would have made a great Kerry commercial, the problem is that they're just not ruthless enough.

Not to mention pissing off Australia by failing to acknowledge them as partners.
Kerry remembered them, Bush couldn't.
